April 14, 2009

The Center of Investigation and Republican Studies is a group that aims to study, investigate and realize the goals of the Republican ideology that historically influenced the formation of the Second Republic in Spain (1931-1939). The organization aims to inform about the Republican ideals without aligning with an official political party so that everyone feels comfortable consulting the sources at CIERE for information. In order to achieve these goals, CIERE publishes books, organizes cultural activities, and grant money to activities that work to promote the goals of the center. For more information and specifics about the objectives of CIERE, visit their website: http://www.ciere.org/
